First comes love, then comes baby...

... then comes...


I know Hillsy and I have done things a little backwards (to most eyes), but then again that's what makes us us. Yes folks, baby daddy popped the question and of course I said yes!!

We're set on having a non-wedding wedding. No frills, no Martha Stewart inspired extravaganzas, just a simple day strictly for the two of us (+seed).

It certainly is turning out to be an action-packed year for us!

Wow! Congrats!!!! :) Totally love the ring and so fantastic that you're not doing the whole shebang wedding and keeping it simple....

Congratulations! Wishing you a forever of happiness!

p.s. There's no 'backwards'. There's no generic life checklist. Do what you want, in the order you want to. :)

Congratulations!!!! That is wonderful news! Don't worry about the order, the hubs and I did the same thing. We had our little bean and then had a very, very, simple wedding a year later on the beach in Tofino, BC, Canada. Lovely. No stress.
Best wishes for a life filled with love and happiness - you deserve it!
Big hugs :)

Marichelle said...

You guys are the best! Thank you for the encouraging words - here's to "doing it your way"!!!

Liza said...

Mazel Tov Marichelle! Gorgeous ring too!

modish said...

what a lovely ring! Is it antique? And conrats on both fronts! I just read on Ez's blog that you are preggers and was like "Wha??" I need to catch up! You're going to be a beautiful bride and a great mama. And kudos for doing things in a non-prescribed way and for having just a day to yourselves for the wedding (we don't seem to be doing things in the "correct order" either round here :)
Yay Marichelle!!
<3 j

Marichelle said...

Hi Liza, hope you and the bump are doing well!!
Thank you so much Jena! Oh and it is vintage, I believe it's from the Edwardian era. Can you believe I'm preggers??? I know!! I still can't believe it myself!!!

Ces said...

Amanda @ Bits & Pieces said...

Your ring is so unique and gorgeous!! I LOVE IT! What's the story behind it? Is it vintage antique?

Marichelle said...

Thanks Amanda! It is vintage. Unfortunately I don't know much about its previous owner. It was from an estate sale and apparently from the Edwardian era.
